This past month, I took myself out of my “life” and traveled to Arizona for 4 days of health, wellness, fitness, nutrition and spirituality — all things I LOVE and aspire to live with on a day to day basis. This wasn’t easy for me— to leave my kids, husband and work behind. I hesitated and for a while and considered cancelling my trip! Thankfully – my inner voice (not my head!) guided me and I got on that plane!
I learned and re-learned a wealth of information about health and wellness in general and my own self. I highly recommend we all take time out — by ourselves — on a regular basis.
So much of what I learned really came under the belief of “being your all — instead of having it all.”
One of the topics that stood out to me is this advice: whatever you do — stand 100% behind yourself. BE you — 100% without doubts and seconded guessing. For example, if you have a glass of wine — be 100% behind that decision — instead of “well, maybe I should’ve not done that…” We not only build self-confidence when we make decisions with certainty but we increase our brain health! And, we stop “shoulding” on ourselves and instead live a more confident self.
And, the importance of stillness — through meditation (so many ways to do this!) — mindfulness, listening, and just being — can not be understated. If we move from activity to activity — or shut our feelings down or out — we are not letting our true essence live.
I also learned — new to me — a VERY powerful way to heal — called ““Holographic Memory Resolution®” If you are “stuck” and have an emotional memory and/or issue reoccur in your life — this may be for you. Contact me and I’ll forward to you more info.
And here’s a powerful way to move ourselves from fear: Step 1) notice/be aware of the fear, 2) accept it and just be with it and 3) ask yourself “how would I feel without this fear.”
This is VERY powerful! Believe me – I used this process while trying to get a horse to lift his leg so I could clean his hoof. Horses will only comply with us when they feel 100% safe (people too!) — and to feel safe — they need us to be authentic with ourselves and that means — feel what we feel and do steps 1-3 listed above.
To lift a horse’s leg — you need to place your thumb and middle finger in a particular spot on their leg — but you also need to be PRESENT — authentically. By the end of my time with my horse “Windheart” — he would lift his leg when I stood by him — all on his own! He also loved smelling my aromatherapy I had on — he would lift his nose — sniff and take it all in. I will never forget this horse and my time with him. He made me re-realize that I get caught up in the “doing” a lot and I forget to just BE — no matter how I feel.
Thank you Windheart – this is very important life advice!
